That should be expected.  Neither Gnome or KDE is reasonable in their resource
usage, on any platform.  Try the exact same packages on, say, a 90MHz Pentium
and witness the same sluggishness.

If you really need native Gnome support in your window manager, try using
icewm-gnome instead of the full gnome-session.  You'll notice the diffrence.
